    I created one of the campaign election videos for Labour, and Jeremy Corbyn,
    This is a new version of Emeli Sande, Hope "You Are Not Alone
    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories. 

    You can see the video here.

    If I had a £1 for every time that promises and statements were made by politicians I would be evicting Richard Branson on Tuesday as I now own his island!

    It will not happen or I should say it will be so severely watered down that very few pensioners will actually qualify.

    The Chancellor of the Exchequer can't afford to give all 270,000 pensioners a semi permanent (10 year cycle) benefit windfall. 
    A pensioner on enhanced for both rakes in £580 of PIP every 4 weeks If they would have had the normal 4 year award, review after three years, the intention would be to give them another 7 years worth of money £52,780 without any reviews to see if they would actually be entitled to it. This also disregards any premiums they will also get because of the longer PIP award period.
